As you can see it’s still very simple and I am only just playing around with the gpio pins at the moment, trying to get a small working setup testing different methods.
Does any of you know what causes this issue or how to fix it?
Tags such as [“Lighting”] are used to interact with the light device via a natural voice command if implemented in the addon binding. Per the doc’s, this should be ignored by OH if not implemented, so I’m not sure why this would break your setup.
Do you have anything in the logs that indicate the issue with these items?
Edit: Have you tried a tag with spacing like [ “Lighting” ] opposed to [“Lighting”]? The doc’s for Homekit show this as supported.
Well I actually just realized that the tag must come before the gpio tag. However, I still can’t connect my Homekit app to it. It can’t find any Homekit accessories when I use the code. I tried yesterday with a test and it worked. But now I can’t find any items with my Homekit
Just looking at the documentation, complex accessories require a tag on a Group indicating the accessory type, as well as tags on the items it composes.
Also, HomeKit allows only a single pairing to be established with the bridge. This pairing is normally shared across devices via iCloud. If you need to establish a new pairing, you’ll need to clear the existing pairings. To do this, you can issue the command smarthome:homekit clearPairings from the Karaf console.
Try clearing your existing pairings and use groups when tagging.
Alright it all working now! Thank you so so much with your help and for your patience. I am new to openhab and raspberry pi (have done a bit of linuxing before) so most of this is new to me.
Again thank you so much!
